There is a high chance that the opponent will built some units and destroy at
least one of your cars. Make sure you won't build any others even if that
happens or it won't count.

I would be better if you were Prof. Anders since the turret upgrade will cost 50% less and also instead of building 10 warthogs, I sent in 4 and built 2 scorpions.
Hope this helps.

I tried it as the guide said, and got beat down hard... he sent a tank at me, set up a turret, and just destroyed me...i tried again, and turned on all the skulls that DECREASE your final score...and it worked perfectly...

i didnt see anything about the skulls on this page so i thought i'd help...

yes a couple tanks or buff units will do, i found the absolute easiest way was using a covenant leader. i went prophet, and simply dominated until i got 3 stars. then overpowered his base, so easy. not to mention i used 0/40 food

Comment #11 was right. Just turn on all the skulls in which decrease your score, and follow the guide listed, take all 9 units plus the one you start with and just go bananas on their base.

I did it the way the guide suggested, got this and the other related achievement. Easy. I don't know why you people are talking about tanks and shit.

It work fine, just make sure you drop the disruptor bomb in front of the base as a warthog drives past.

I did this by playing Tug of War. Use a covenant leader power to quickly destroy the enemy base first and then kill off the remaining units. I used Prophet of Regret against Arbiter when I did this.

the easy but not cheap, and still fun way..
2 scarabs and 1 or 2 engineers for repairs, plus your leader.

go covenant.. i prefer the prophet of regret.
build up your base with turrets for protection.. maybe build 1 or 2 honor guards.
build 2 scarabs, and march them, the engineers and leader right up to the enemy base.. boom!! cleansing beam (prophets Y ability) is a great help too.

don't waste time with any of the unit buildings besides the summit to build engineers.. and really even that you could possibly skip. just don't let your scarabs or leader get hit to much.

This is a bullshit strategy. Who the fuck writes this stuff?

Turn all decrease score skulls on

Learn gunner

send all warthogs at once

Faggot lazy 360achievements mods.
